CATEGORY HIGHLIGHTS

Lightweight 6066 triple butted aluminium frame with tapered head tube for precise steering and Press-Fit 86 bottom bracket for effective power transfer. Featuring internal cable routing and aero profiled tubing.

All performance DISC road bikes feature 12 mm bolt through axles for greater wheel stiffness and precise disc alignment when replacing wheels. CF4 models use the R.A.T system, super fast to open and close.

All REACTO models feature a full carbon fork with a tapered steerer to give precise, confidence inspiring handling. Aluminium and CF2 carbon models feature a ‘regular’ 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" taper. The high end CF4 frame has a slimmed down front profile and uses a 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" taper.

Our wind tunnel learnings from the REACTO design project have been used to create a smaller aerodynamically optimised ‘NACA Fastback’ tube profile. The more extreme truncation of the teardrop shaped tubes enables perfect airflow at the lowest possible weight.

A forged aluminium part under the front and rear disc brake caliper draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins, giving 35% less heat build up and faster temperature reduction for a stable braking performance.

Our top end CF4 frame brings in 850 g (size M/L) in the caliper brake version whilst the CF4 Disc frameset tips the scales at 1000 g (size M/L). Incredible readings while offering a lifetime warranty on all our frames, even when raced. 

The SCULTURA DISC and rim version can be fitted with 25 mm wide tyres, providing maximum traction and transferring the improved braking power to the road. The 25 mm tyres also offer improved comfort. 

Technologies

IMAGE

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

IMAGE

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

IMAGE

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
